While my train stands still underneath Schiphol airport – yes I am on my way to Amsterdam for an interview with author Christopher Paolini (if you’ve never heard of him, you might have heard of google) – I would like you to know that the.ego.tripper has been nominated for a Belgian Weblog Golden Globe Award. Mind you, this is not the official title, but it definitely sounds cooler than Weekend Blog Awards, doesn’t it?
Anyway, I’m not one of those bloggers that would ask you to vote for him. But be careful, can you feel the Jedi mind trick coming? So, please, whatever you do, don’t vote for me here. If you do, you have to vote in about four other categories first, before you arrive at ‘reizen’, which incidentally means travelling.
I’ve nothing else to add. Frankly, if I hadn’t gotten this awesome news about my nomination, I would be depressed right now. Holland seen from a train is already horrendous, but it’s raining incredibly hard. And there’s a Scandinavian guy next to me who smells like fish, or lachs in his language. I’m about to cry. Please don’t vote for me. Thank you.
